      Hi, my name is Kristaps, I`m 19 years old and I`m from Riga. Today I was playing at micros and after my session thinked out that I could start my blog. My english isn`t very good so sorry for that :)
      I started playing poker with pokerstrategy $50 starting capital and currently playing at NL6 on 888poker. Hope to climb up to NL10 soon.

      Temporarily my graph looks like this:



      Today was my first big session at cash game and I think I was running pretty good

      Nice graph for a start there. Especially for NL6!

      Good luck on your mission!

      will be intresting to follow your progress. And thats a sweet graph! Obviously sustaining that 27+BB/100 will be hard (probably immposible in the long run) but still a hell of a start.
      Good luck and a lot of skill in the following sessions ;)

      And will have to rebuild some stacks :) So if you feel you`re going on tilt then I prescribe you to better take a break.

      I think next week I`ll put some more graphs, probably on sunday.

      Have a nice day to everyone.

      Actually I don't see what else could you have done in the last two hands, probably I'm on tilt too :D Maybe the block-bet on the river should have been smaller when you picked up a straight with QJ, and a little bit bigger bet on the turn.

      here is my NL10 graph just 3k hands but I think looks pretty good :)

      [img][IMG]http://www.bildites.lv/images/x70sv1zvwuxa5ka1hmvz_thumb.jpg[/IMG][/img]

      Next week will continue to take shots at NL20 and play NL10. Maybe play some SnG`s or mtt.

      They are full of fishes. Play good ABC poker there and you should bust them all :) Of course there are some good players but they goes up fast and don`t stay at micros.

      Hi readers

      Maybe you have thought that I`m broke because I haven`t posted here anything for some time but that`s not truth. :tongue:

      Next month there will be precisely one year since I`m registered here and playing poker with some knowledge about this game. Currently I`m playing at nl100 and nl200. So I think this is not bad start at all to be a full time reg at this limits for not even year.

      Plans about future - This month I hope to accede to music academy

      Make a lot of $$$ to have a good time in my favorite clubs

      Till the end of this year I plan to reach VIP status at 888poker.

      Till end of this year be a full time reg at nl200 and maybe nl400

      Earn car in the picture below by playing poker




      So for now I think this is it. Good luck all :)

      How are the casinos and live poker in Riga?
      Are there cash games and if yes what levels are we talking about?
